I’m Sarah Lauterbach, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I am a recovering perfectionist, beach lover (Atlantic only, Pacific is too cold), fur baby owner (two shelter dogs and cats), reader (Stephen King is my favorite!), and mother to two young children.
Prior to becoming a healer I worked in medical and educational settings. I volunteered as a Rape Crisis Counselor and realized I could help more people as a mental health professional. I struggled with anxiety from a young age and sought out help from a therapist as a young adult. As an intern I worked in community mental health settings, low fee clinics, and for middle and high schools in my community. I found the clients that I connected with the best seemed to struggle with anxiety and perfectionism. I currently work part-time for a school based mental health agency in a highly competitive high school in the south bay.
I am originally from the East Coast (North Carolina) but have called California my home for the last ten years. I have lived abroad (England) and went to college in the Northeast (Pennsylvania). I graduated with a Masters in Counseling Psychology from Santa Clara University in 2013.
